iTunes Review

Katy Goodman named her second solo album Sees the Light because, when spoken aloud, it could be heard as “seize the light”—another way of declaring her newfound confidence and focus. After a year of growth and transition (following her sublimely dense and hazy self-titled 2011 debut), the Vivian Girls bassist emerges with a second solo record that's sharper and more rugged, with songs that both luxuriate in the wrappings of shoegazery and sparkle with clarity. “Love That’s Gone” opens with a languid, girl-group melody, stripped down to Goodman’s dreamy vocal and the barest of percussion and guitar carrying her voice along like a twig in a creek. That gives way to the shimmering, multilayered “Please Be My Third Eye,” a superbly catchy pop tune with a fun chorus and sweet sentiment. These two tracks lay the groundwork for Sees the Light, a multitextured collection of songs that range from neon-colored atmospherics to Ramones-tinged pop. The breezy acoustic guitar on “I’m Alone” and the tropical flavor of “Real Boy” are nice touches, and the breathless pop-punk of “Break My Heart” is a real standout. Is it summer yet?

This album rings a bit different than La Sera's self-titled debut album, but the sounds are just as dreamy. La Sera seamlessly blends unique, talented vocals and creative instrumentation into what one might describe as a deliciously blended smoothie for the ears. Overall, this is a wonderful album worth buying and something that can be played over and over again.


I've had an earful of a lot of indie rock/pop, but this brings a whole new lightness and brightness that's rarely seen or heard in the genre. This clean sound flows extremely well, and it grows on me with every play. Can't get enough. 5-5


Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s, '10s

La Sera began as the dreamy pop songwriting vehicle for Brooklyn bassist Katy Goodman of noise pop band Vivian Girls, then shifted styles from punk to alt-country as she progressed. She began penning solo songs in February 2009 and initial demos were sent to good friend, filmmaker, and music producer Brady Hall, who fell for the charming, ethereal vocals and '50s pop influences that Goodman exudes; he re-recorded material at his home studios in Seattle. After hearing the warm pop sounds that Hall...
